My husband and I visited the Batik factory as part of our day tour and we weren't expecting much, however I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed our visit. The souvenirs are good quality and we picked up a few things to take back to NZ. Yes the staff do follow you around however I didn't find it threatening or think... More

outside the shop you can see the way they traditionally make the products that they want to sell you - which seems reasonable to me and quite interesting to watch. The shop was ok but when will they learn that for a lot of people being followed every step of the way is off-putting and can stop you buying (not... More

An interesting place to see traditionally made threaded saris, dresses etc. The show room has lots of items including clothes and accessories but price not that attractive!

As others such attractions in Bali you are first taken trough the process of making the product you are offered to buy in the shop. You are shown each of the stages of making the fabric with actual people executing the stages in front of you. The shop then offers you a wide variety of product each with a colourful... More

This was an interesting place to visit in that you could see how delicately the thread saris, dresses etc were produced and the techniques used and you were given an A4 sheet with some information on which was good however we were not interactively shown around the workers and we couldn't really engage with them. The show room has a... More

Visited this place on our way to Ubud. Nothing special except that there's staff demonstrating how to weave the batik. it's interesting to look at for about 5 minutes. Went inside to look around but it's a tourist trap. everything is very costly and it's very dark inside the display area. However, if you wanna ensure that you are purchasing... More

We visited here as part of a tour and found it hard to fill the alloted 2 hours we had here. There were women demonstrating the art of batik which was very interesting to watch but not for any more than a few minutes! The shop had many beautiful pieced for sale but they were ridiculously overpriced. I'm glad we... More

Our driver/tour guide wanted us "just to look around" . We did. The employees outside were doing the dyeing and sewing. There was no picture taking allowed in the show room. The prices were high for me. The staff inside was not friendly. we did not stay long.

Our driver told us he wanted to stop at a few places along the way from Legian to Ubud. I rolled my eyes, knowing I would be paying more-than-Indonesian prices, but consented. This was the first stop, and I was glad we went. It was interesting watching the women making batik fabric and other crafts, and the store had absolutely... More

Since i grew up sewing with my mom I had a great interest and appreciation for what the women were doing....the colors and fabrics were beautiful. I knew I could get better prices on the street but the fabrics were flimsier in my opinion. I got caught up in shopping and forgot to go upstairs. ugh
